Heading into a great white wilderness
Heading into a great white wilderness
We met these cross-country skiers on top of Fiend's Fell heading towards Cross Fell ('as far as we get'). They had parked at the cafe on top of Hartside, having driven up from Cheshire. They will have to get their skates on(!) if they intend visiting Cross Fell - it's a long way off. Down in the dip ahead of them we also met a couple snow-shoeing. Both their sets of tracks were very helpful to us mere walkers in the soft snow.
